Lepidoptera Exotica, or, Descriptions and Illustrations is a book written by Arthur Gardiner Butler and published in four volumes between 1869 and 1874. The book contains detailed descriptions and illustrations of exotic moths and butterflies from various regions around the world.

The book is significant for its contributions to the study of entomology, particularly the taxonomy and classification of Lepidoptera. It contains over 200 illustrations, which were created using lithography and chromolithography techniques. The illustrations are accompanied by detailed descriptions of the species, including information on their taxonomy, distribution, and behavior.

One of the notable features of the book is its focus on exotic species, which were relatively unknown to Western entomologists at the time. Butler's descriptions and illustrations helped to increase knowledge and understanding of these species and contributed to the development of new classification systems.

Arthur Gardiner Butler was a renowned entomologist and curator at the British Museum. He was known for his expertise in Lepidoptera and made significant contributions to the study of moths and butterflies. Lepidoptera Exotica was one of his most significant works and established him as a leading authority in the field of entomology.
